Quote of the Day

Kirk: Mister Scott, you old space dog. You’re well?

Scotty: I had me a wee bout, sir, but Doctor McCoy pulled me through.

Kirk: Oh? A wee bout of what?

McCoy: Shore leave, Admiral.

Kirk: Ah. … Well, shall we start with the Engine Room?

Scotty: We’ll see you there, sir, and everything is in order.

Kirk: That’ll be a pleasant surprise, Mister Scott.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Quote of the Day

Scotty: Admiral.

Kirk: Mister Scott.

Scotty: Those departure orders, twelve hours, Starfleet cannot be serious.

Kirk: Why aren’t the Enterprise transporters operating, Mister Scott?

Scotty: A wee problem, sir, really. Just temporary. Admiral, we have just spent eighteen months redesigning and refitting the Enterprise. How in the name of hell do they expect to have her ready in twelve hours?

Kirk: Take me over, please.

(they board a travel pod)

Scotty: She needs more work, a shakedown.

Kirk: Mister Scott, there’s an alien object with unbelievable destructive power less than three days away from this planet… The only starship in interception range is the Enterprise. Ready, or not, she launches in twelve hours.

Scotty: The crew hasn’t had near enough transition time with all the new equipment. And the engines are not yet tested at warp power. And an untried captain.

Kirk: Two and a half years as chief of Starfleet Operations may have made me a stale but I wouldn’t exactly consider myself… untried. They gave her back to me, Scotty.

Scotty: Gave her back, sir? I doubt it was that easy with Nogura.

Kirk: (in a Scottish accent) Yer right.

Scotty: Well, any man who could manage such a feat, I would’na dare disappoint. She’ll launch on time, sir, …and she’ll be ready.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture

Quote of the Day

Scotty: I found this on Ganyroom, er, Ganymeer… mede. 

Tomar: What is it? 

Scotty: Well, it’s, er… (peers at it, sniffs it) …it’s green.

Star Trek — Season 2: Episode 21 — “By Any Other Name”

Quote of the Day

McCoy: A negative attitude is no good to us. We can’t just leave them out there, wherever they are. 

Spock: We shall continue sensor scans, Doctor. At the moment, that is all we can do, except hope for a rational explanation. 

McCoy: Hope? I always thought that was a human failing, Mister Spock. 

Spock: True, Doctor. Constant exposure does result in a certain degree of contamination.

Star Trek — Season 2: Episode 17 — “The Gamesters of Triskelion”

Quote of the Day

Kirk: Scotty, can you do it? 

Scotty: Not by myself. I’ll need help. And you’d be too conspicuous. 

McCoy: I’m a doctor, not an engineer. 

Scotty: Now you’re an engineer.

Star Trek — Season 2: Episode 10 — “Mirror, Mirror”

Quote of the Day

Scotty: It’s a shame for a good Scotsman to admit it, but I’m not up on Milton.

Kirk: The statement Lucifer made when he fell into the pit. “It is better to rule in hell than serve in heaven.”

Spock: It would be interesting, Captain, to return to that world in a hundred years and to learn what crop has sprung from the seed you planted today.

Kirk: Yes, Mister Spock, it would indeed.

Star Trek – Season 1: Episode 24 – “Space Seed”

Quote of the Day

Scotty: Mister Spock, you said a while ago that there were always alternatives.

Spock: Did l? I may have been mistaken.

McCoy: Well, at least I lived long enough to hear that.

Star Trek – Season 1: Episode 13 – “The Galileo Seven”

Quote of the Day

Scotty: He’s turned the engines off. Completely cold. It will take thirty minutes to regenerate them.

Uhura: Ship’s outer skin is beginning to heat, Captain. Orbit plot shows we have about eight minutes left.

Kirk: Scotty!

Scotty: I can’t change the laws of physics. I’ve got to have thirty minutes.
